How Memory Scraping Tools Can Cause Many Problems
Most companies wonder why memory scraping is so bad, especially because you can buy these products online for your IT department to use. While they are considered legal and can do some good, especially to test for vulnerabilities in Windows operating systems and applications, they can also be used by cybercriminals to steal information.

It is annoying to think that all these products are available and that they can harm your systems, steal your private information and use it for personal gain.

Why Not Use a Specialized Tool?
Some people worry that sensitive data may be stored in the memory without their knowledge and will use the tool to find it and figure out how to remove it. The problem is that sensitive data can and will be stored in your memory, especially for POS systems and the like. Therefore, you need a product that will help keep it secure, even before it is encrypted for safety reasons. Contact us today to learn more.
